Combining over 15 years of study of yoga and behavioral health, Annie designs yoga practices that help each person physically, emotionally and spiritually. Yoga for Health is an adaptive approach that addresses individual needs and strengths, rather than an athletic form of yoga. Group classes are small so that each student receives the attention that he or she needs in a supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere.
Private Instruction is best suited to those who are interested in developing a personal practice or for those would like to address special needs not appropriate to a group class. It can be a useful tool when we need encouragement or guidance. We may not always be aware of which of our reactions and behaviors are causing us problems. It is also difficult to sustain changes even when we want to change. Private instruction with a teacher can help us become more aware of our patterns and support our desire to change.
